Unwanted emails are very frustrating, and the law through the CAN-SPAM Act regulates commercial emails and protects you from spam emails. However, the act does not emphasize the unsubscribe button and companies take advantage of that.

How to Remove My Email from Unwanted Emails
Can I completely remove my email from every subscription? This is a question asked by every frustrated email user. There are different ways in which you can remove your email from the mailing list, mainly depending on the email service provider, including:
1. The Unsubscribe Button
Most ethical marketing emails come with an unsubscribe button and the end of the message. The link might be embedded in an "Unsubscribe" or "Change email preferences" message. You should be careful as the link might be hidden within the text, written in small font, or blend seamlessly with the other text.
Click on the link and follow the instructions to unsubscribe. Some companies might ask you to send an email with the subject line to request mailing list removal.
One downside of using the unsubscribe button is that unethical companies might use it to add you to more mailing lists. Refrain from providing your email address if prompted during the removal process.
2. Google Gmail
Gmail has special features that sort primary, social, or promotional and store them in different tabs. Emails from unknown sources, including unverified personal addresses, are dismissed and stored as spam.
The disadvantage of this filtering is that legitimate emails might be filtered as spam if you have not added the sender's address to your contact list. G Suite users cannot access this filtering feature unless their administrator has enabled the option.
If marketing emails or newsletter finds its way to the main mail tab, Gmail senses it and provides an unsubscribe button at the top of the message. You can follow these steps to unsubscribe and get your address on a mailing list through Gmail:
- Open the email and click on the 'unsubscribe' button below the subject line and next to the sender's information
- Gmail will ask you to confirm your decision confirm by clicking on the "Unsubscribe" button again
- You have the option to block the sender entirely by selecting "Block" on the "More" menu options
The unsubscribe button can only be accessed through a PC, as the option is not available on Gmail's iOS and Android apps.
3. Apple's iOS Mail App
The native Apple mailing app automatically detects newsletters and marketing emails and gives an unsubscribe button at the top of messages. Click on that link and confirm to unsubscribe. However, it is impossible to block emails on the iOS Mail app.
4. Microsoft Outlook
The Microsoft Outlook desktop and mobile apps have an unsubscribe button on opened emails. Click this to unsubscribe and confirm. You can block the sender on the desktop app, but it is impossible through the mobile app.
5. Bulk Unsubscribing Tools
Not all unwanted emails get recognized by the email apps. There are third-party companies that offer bulk unsubscribing services on subscriptions. The downside of these third-party tools is that you give a third party full access to your email, which might leak your private information or sell your data.
